It’s an outdoor activity you haven’t thought about since summer camp. But archery for adults is a biggish deal in the Bay Area. There are clubs and lessons in Golden Gate Park, the Oakland Hills and near Redwood City.  Bows have gotten massively high tech but you will probably want to stick with something more straight forward. Lessons generally start at $25 for 1 ½ hours. Equipment provided. You don’t have to stand there aiming at a target. New twists on this old sport include Field Archery with targets spaced apart so you can include a bit of hiking. And 3D Archery is the same idea but instead of targets, there are animals. Not real ones I hasten to add – foam ones.
